  3. This is great! We really enjoyed the addition of curry to the popcorn. I did not use the optional ingredients this time, but I am intrigued to try them next time... I am thinking coconut first, yum! Thanks for sharing!


I come from the land of Dracula and I have two little daughters; they're three years apart.I travelled a lot and I lived in Hungary,Croatia,Canada,Thailand,Japan and Iran(DH is from here). I've seen a lot of wonderful places, the travel bug is still in me but waiting for DDs to grow a little so we can go together. Lots of wonderful memories and hoping to add some more,but my travelling style has to be adjusted now.No more backpacking! I feel old,suddenly. My girls are everything for me and I'm lucky that I'm able to be at home with them.My life really changed since having them. I like eating healthy,DH works out a lot and taught me about the right foods.Right now I'm trying to lose a few kg,but I'm happy if I lose one kg/month. Never needed a drastic diet,I drink a lot of water and luckylly there's no McDonalds here(yet) to eat junk food. I prefer homemade cooking to restaurants, these days we can make a better tasting meal at home. I like knowing what goes in my food and what hands are cooking it. I always look at a chef's hands and believe me I've seen dirty fingers too! I came to the Zaar to look for a pancake recipe and now my refrigerator is full with jars of homemade stuff. I made a lot of friends and I enjoy playing in the tag games since receiving a premium membership gift from Sydney Mike. Thank you, Syd. I want to thank everyone who makes my recipes and takes the time to take photos. Sometimes I loose track and I can't get back to thank each person making a recipe. I don't mind if someone doesn't stick to the recipe,everyone's taste and needs are different,sometimes ingredients are hard to find and I know this better than most. Please feel free to experiment and hope we'll learn something new from your feedback. <a href="" id="clustrMapsLink"><img src="" style="border:0px;" alt="Locations of visitors to this page" title="Locations of visitors to this page" id="clustrMapsImg" onerror="this.onerror=null; this.src=''; document.getElementById('clustrMapsLink').href='';" /> </a> These are the tag games that I took part in: <img src= ""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"X><img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Gimme 5 personal banner"> <img src=""><img src=""> <img src=""><img src="" border="0" alt="Susie's Banner for Newest Zaar Tag"> <img src=> <img src=""> <img src=""><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""><img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src=> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="">
